I Never Draw Flowers Anymore

When I was younger I used to draw nothing but flowers - and perhaps the occassional female form. I would scribble out little daisies, tulips, sunflowers, etc. I once even tried my hand at daffodils. But now I think flora kind of bores me. Maybe I found another idea of beauty. Don't get me wrong - flowers are beautiful, nature is beautiful, but I've moved into things more obscure - ideas that (to me anyway) are fresh and new. I can see my herb garden blooming and gorgeous every day - but most of the time I don't want to draw it. Maybe I should though. A nature journal might be a good study tool.

Herbs growing in my garden:
Catmint: spectacular show of spiked, purple flowers. Great temperment and easy to grow.
Catnip: nothing in bloom yet, but it's growing well.
Perennial Hyssop: Also not blooming. I am eagerly awaiting this plants sweet color.
Bee Balm: Not even sure what it looks like in bloom just yet.
Sage - Common and English: no blooms, but it's the leaves I'm after anyway.
Roman Chamomile: this little perennial is going to make a quiet apple flavored tea. The little daisy-like blossoms are plain charming in the garden as well.
Echinacea: an ancient natural remedy that's root is good for many ailments.
Lavendar - Coconut Ice, Blue Hidcote, English: My favorite herb. Makes a great tea and just makes everything smell better.

I think that's all of them. I'll try to get a picture of it up soon.
